My French Army of 1940

As well as painting some extra figures as detailed in an earlier post I also reorganised and rebased the rest of my French forces. So here's what I possess.

The whole army

The pretty armour - H35/H39 and R40s backed up by Char B1s and S35s with a few FT17s thrown in

Transport plus a bit of armour. Certainly need a few more R35s

Some of the infantry, the fourth battalion is incomplete, but I plan to use it as a source of figures for a Reece battalion

Artillery, a couple of 47mm AT guns backed up by trio of 75mm guns and a 75mm mountain gun

Another view of the transport

And the armour

The whole arny again


Further work to do on rebasing the cyclists so I can have a company of these as part of the Reece battalion

Hello - will you be adding any horsed units or transport to your army? The cyclists - are they Airfix WW1 figures?

I meant to start my message with congrats on a good looking collection.

I...am...SO ENVIOUS of this army! What a great collection! So well done and so comprehensive. Bravo!

That is a great collection, well done. I can appreciate the work that went into this; my WW II and RCW armies are all 20mm plastic.
Plans for any large 1940 battles?

Great army. Inspiration to keep on my own french 1940.

Very impressive. Nice to see some of the Airfix WW1 French put into service. Mine are now so old they shatter if they get touched, which is a pity as they had some good poses and the sculpture was good as well - not too thin or small for the scale.

I like to see troops for the Blitzkrieg, still a rare thing!

That's a sweet collection; so are your others of course (jealous).

Wish there was a close up of the bicycle recon!
